Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rebuild, from the Psychic Tarot For The Heart Tarot Card deck, by John Holland
Rebuild ~ Key Words: “Collapse, Expose, Create, Pretense, Revelation, Awareness.”
“The dynamics of a relationship can often be complicated. The longer you have been a relationship, the more complex it can be. Relationships begin to grow many layers, consisting of joys, sorrows, honesty, and duplicity. As these layers build on top of each other, it becomes increasingly difficult to know what the core of the relationship is based on. What was once love may now appear to merely tolerance… or worse. Even in good relationships, you many find yourself growing apart from the other person. In either case, the weight of these layers can cause a relationship to collapse.
Now may be a good time to start fresh with one or more of your relationships. Peel off the layers one by one, cut away any pretense, and see what may be revealed. Find the core of the relationship and decide if it is still what you want, and what you find attractive. If so, then discard the old layers and consciously create a new commitment with this person or persons – one based on truth, honesty, and love. Use the awareness gained by this exercise to steer the relationship on a clear, steady course.
The same applies to rebuilding the relationship with yourself. Examine your many layers of joys and sorrows, successes and failures, and think about how they are affecting your ability to love yourself and, therefore, to find love. Expose the false voices that tell you that you are unworthy, and silence them. When you do this, your true value will be revealed. Rebuild your life around unconditional love for yourself, and invite in unconditional love from others.
I cut to the core of my relationships and consciously rebuild them.”*

The relationships in our lives are there for a reason. The uncomfortable ones are just as important as the loving ones; they are there to teach us about our own value and self-worth. Once the lesson is learned, the relationship can be blessed and released. Looking closely at your current relationships, what are the lessons? You may find harmony and love, in which case you have learned the lesson of self worth and are a living inspiration to those around you by living in balance. If you see toxicity in your relationships, maybe it is time to look inward to see the lesson. How do you feel about yourself that is reflected back to you?
We are here to experience joy, abundance, acceptance, gratitude and unconditional love. However, this is not always the case. If we are not experiencing these things, then we must come back into balance within ourselves first. Starting with forgiveness and acceptance of ourselves. No exceptions. Not getting stuck in putting it off until we deem ourselves worthy, but starting immediately.
Take few moments to gaze into your own eyes in the mirror. Admire the depth of soul, the love, the eternity that you can see, the light of the Divinity within. Send forgiveness, acceptance, love and healing right into those beautiful eyes. Know that the soul looking at you is perfect just the way they are. Release any fear, guilt, shame or denial that you are any less than perfect. Know that you chose this flesh and blood vehicle for this life’s journey. Bless it. Thank it for getting you to where you are now, and commit to caring for it wholeheartedly from this moment on.
Repeat this exercise every morning when you wake up and every night before bed and see the transformation Unconditional love can have on you when it starts from within. Know that you are safe to step back from those who do not treat you with this very same love and acceptance, thanking them for the lesson.
